We've been digging the keyboard grooves of James Taylor for decades – and still, after all that time, he's one of the tightest, most soulful cats around! This sweet set takes Taylor back to the groove he was first hitting in the mid 90s – that blend of Hammond with funky 70s modes – somewhere in the late Prestige Records, or sublime Fantasy soul style – served up here by a core quartet, with added horns, flute, harmonica, and male vocals on a few tracks. Taylor's keys are wonderfully tight and soaring – very much in Hand Of The Inevitable territory, with a 70s Johnny Hammond vibe – and titles include "Loneliness", "Koko", "Song For My Dad", "Light Up Your Soul", "Woman", "Home Is Where The Hatred Is", and "The Template".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Real Self (UK), 2013. New Copy
Continuing genius from keyboardist James Taylor – exactly the kind of set that supports all the faith we've had in his music over the years! James steps out here in a vibe that's very different than before, yet every bit as great – still keyboard-heavy, with plenty of Hammond – ... CD
Daptone, 1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy
Incredible funk from The Poets Of Rhythm – one of the hardest and heaviest groups in the deep funk underground – and one of the first, too – given that most of the work here pre-dates efforts by all the rest of the Daptone and Soul Fire generation! Long before there was even a ... CD
13 Degrees Of Reality
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy
If this is reality, lead us onward – as the set is a mindblowing batch of trippy psych-funk from The Heliocentrics – even more offbeat and experimental than before, in ways that make the combo the true heirs to the legacy first begun by Stark Reality! The album's definitely funky at ... CD
TNT Productions (Germany), Late 80s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 2 CDs
A great collection of work from Grand Slam – a German funk combo who were serving up a classic take on American sounds long before the Daptone and Soul Fire generation! These guys are equally influenced by James Brown and George Clinton – especially the latter, given the bass-heavy ... CD
Who's Cooking
TNT Productions (Germany), 2013. New Copy
Grand Slam take plenty of inspiration from the P-Funk universe – and as proof of that fact, they've got Gary Mudbone Cooper on vocals for a few tracks on this sweet little set – a record that definitely offers up a 21st Century evolution of the original P-Funk groove! The combo are ... CD
Hot Casa (France), 2013. New Copy
One of the coolest Latin combos cooking today – a group who are heavily influenced by the funky Latin sound of the 70s, and who work here in a Parisian studio playing only on vintage instruments! If that sounds like too much hype, don't worry – because it's really just our way of ... CD
